Ice Cube made waves this summer launching his own professional basketball league, the BIG3, a 10 week touring-league, that consists of former NBA players in a half court 3-on-3 format.
Speaking with the Dallas Morning News, Cube hopes to bring Dirk Nowitzki aboard when his playing days are done. “We hope one day to have Dirk (Nowitzki) in our league if he still wants to hoop out when he finishes (with) the Mavericks,” said Cube.
The BIG3 also incorporates a 4-point shot, which Cube think the Big German would do damage from.
“I think from the 4-point shot he would be deadly,” Ice Cube said. “No one can stop him when he wants to just shoot it. He can come out and be a specialist. He doesn’t have to get in the paint. He can come out and just gun it from the 4. I think he’d be great.”
Dirk is entering his 20th season with the Dallas Mavericks and recently signed a two-year contract with the Mavs.
The BIG3 will be at the American Airlines Center on Sunday, July 30 at 2:00 p.m. Click here for more details.
